The 70s and 80s were definitely David Bowie decades, as were the 2000s and 2010s, but even the 90s—that gel-spiked morass of huge pants and Gap ads—were a time influenced by the Thin White Duke, as evidenced by this surprisingly good Smash Mouth cover of "Under Pressure." You may be saying to yourself right now "Hey, I thought that was a Queen song." You're right—it was created by both of them. Yes, that's right, "Under Pressure" was co-written by Bowie and Queen. How cool is that? Almost as cool as being covered by 90s ska-pop-rock icons Smash Mouth, so we've really come full circle. How is that full circle? Um..."All Star," Blackstar...it's all quite obvious, really. Anyway, the song is pretty good.
